CUTAJAR, Joseph -
It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Joseph Cutajar on Saturday, April 11, 2020 at 4:24am. He passed away peacefully at 88 years old, surrounded by his loved ones.
Joseph Cutajar was born on February 3, 1932 in Birżebbuġa, Malta and moved to Canada when he was 18 years old. He first landed in British Columbia and worked on the Vancouver Railroad before going back to Malta to marry his love, Filippa (Pina) Polidano, on February 14, 1954. They moved to Toronto where he started his career in welding and together they raised their two children, Peter and Mary. Joseph had a passion for fishing and hunting, and was almost always found in his garden or feeding his birds.
Joseph was an incredibly proud and dedicated husband, father and Nannu. He is survived by his wife of 66 years, Pina; two children, Peter and Mary (Angelo Tomassi); grandchildren, Roberto (Lisa), Paolo, and Marisa; and great-grandchildren, Alessandro and Luca.
